After putting up a great fight, the NayNayNayNay team from Laos with four members namely Edward, Vilaysone, Tym, and Phoutkham finished in fourth place after Vietnam, Singapore, and Thailand respectively.

Cyberus Technology Co. Ltd., a Lao Tech company, that recently conducted the Lao Young Hacker Competition pointed out that in recent past Laos finished in ninth or tenth place in such regional competitions, so there is an improvement.
